Chin Implant Surgery

New York NY Plastic Surgeon for Chins

All facial features work together to create a harmonious definition of the face. While many people tend to focus on the nose because it is the center of the face, the ears, cheeks, forehead, and chin all play a role in the overall appearance of a person’s facial structure. The chin is an important feature that defines the shape in the face. It helps to define the jaw area, so that there is visible separation between the face and the neck. Chin implant surgery is performed on both men and women, creating a more appealing profile and a greater sense of confidence.

Chin enhancements are done through a surgical procedure that inserts the chin implant on top of the chin bone, becoming an extension of what structure is there already. Once the implant heals, it will be indistinguishable from the permanent bone in the face. The implant is inserted either inside the mouth or outside under the chin. Placement is determined on an individual basis regarding the patient’s specific needs and desires. A pocket is created in front of the chin bone where the implant is placed under the muscles at the chin. In order to keep the implant securely positioned, the implant will be attached to the bone with sutures or screws.

Chin implant surgery is often combined with other cosmetic facial procedures. Commonly, a nose job is performed at the same time in order to create the most pleasing profile and result. Because a chin implant is done in order to add balance to the appearance of the face, the nose is often taken into consideration because of how much it, too, impacts the profile. A patient is placed under anesthesia for the chin implant, thus it is easy to perform other complimenting procedures at the same time.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
